Moral Dilemma

Rob Chartier posted a good moral dilemma today:

You are driving down the road on a wild, stormy night, when you pass a bus stop and see three people waiting for the bus:

1. An old lady who looks as if she is about to die.
2. An old friend who once saved your life.
3. The perfect partner you have been dreaming about.

Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing that there could only be one passenger in your car?

I love questions like these and the discussions that go along with it.

Personally, I would pick up the old lady (especially if she looks like she's about to die), probably out of a sense of duty. Other supporting reasons for this are that you can't tell a perfect partner on looks alone, and the old friend would surely understand. Besides, it's just a bus they're waiting for in some stormy weather, it's not like they'll perish in a tidal wave or anything!
